America aiming to blackmail, impose conditions on Palestinians

Beirut, Oct 1, IRNA -- Member of the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine has emphasized that Americans intend to blackmail by cutting aid to Palestine Refugee Agency (UNRWA) to force Palestinian leaders to negotiate and accept their terms.

Essam Abudeqqh in an interview with IRNA described the cut of aid to health, medical and human institutions in the Gaza Strip and outside of Palestine as a political blackmail by the US government. The Palestinians are not going under the pressure of the United States and the Zionist regime. Everyone will continue to fight in different ways to achieve their rights, especially the right to return.

Essam Abudeqqh called on the international community to take responsibility, ensure the continuation of UNRWA and find a way to provide the necessary funds to offset its budget deficit in order to provide services to the Palestinian refugees.

The senior member of the Palestinian Democratic Front also called for international action to remove the outrageous Gaza blockade and to adopt a fair position by countries to stand up to the Palestinian people until their rights, especially the right to return, are met.

For 12 years, the Zionist regime has besieged the Gaza Strip from land, sea, and sky, which has led to a humanitarian crisis in the region.
